Zimbra Community's hashtag feature helps you broaden discussions with fellow community members by joining discussions.
- When you enter a hashtag into the body of a post, reply, comment, or status message and begin typing the term, Zimbra Community searches for and suggests similar hashtags. For example if you type "#sum" into a post, Zimbra Community looks for any other hashtags on the site that contain "sum" and offers a drop-down list of tag(s) for you to choose from.
- Hashtags don't have to be previously used. For example if "#sum" has not been used in any previous hashtag, Zimbra Community will offer to tag the term as you type it ("#sum," "#summ," #summe," then "#summer").
- If you enter a # (pound sign) before a term, you must select the tag from the list in order for the content to be indexed on that hashtag. If you choose not to select a hashtag from the list, the term is treated like any other term in search results.
- Entering a hashtag in the search field will return only hashtagged terms. Entering the term without the # will result in finding both hashtagged and untagged content.
You can add hashtags to the following content:
- Forum threads
- Forum replies
- Blog posts
- Gallery posts
- Wiki pages
- Status messages
When you click on a hashtag in content, you see a filtered, contextual list of content containing that hashtag. (If the term is used on your site without a hashtag, it's not added to the list of hashtagged content.)
For example if the tag "#thought" is used across several applications in a group (for example, Sample group blog, forum, and wiki) and you click the hashtag "#thought" in an application (such as in a blog post), Zimbra Community displays any other posts in the same group that contain the hashtag.
